I didn't cheer when he got sick, despite the obvious poetic justice. Or when he got well, after after at least $100K of treatment at taxpayer expense, though I seethed a bit when he proclaimed the illness wasn't a big deal.

I am glad now that he will be departing in declining health and likely to be further strained by legal and financial challenges. With a little luck (we're due, I think), his cult will dissipate and crawl back underneath their rocks as his momentous losing streak drags on.
